L.A based painter Lisa Moneypennyturns propaganda of synthesized idealism on its ear. Updati
ng the ethos of a by-gone era to be more suited to a post modern world. Moneypenny makes her mark on vintage Sears catalogs, girl scout calendars, paint by numbers paintings and childrens books. With her cheeky embellishments, Moneypenny insinuates a subversive tenor that gives the altered works a fetishistic flair. Cutsey cartoon figures are adorned with adult accoutrement annd vice is added to a quaint girl scout scene. Her playful defiance also provokes a catharsis that shakes loose childhood memories of innocently dabbling with taboo.
Lisa Moneypenny has show her work at La Luz de Jesus, CoproGallery, Corey Helford, Thinkspace and Hive.
